Mukombero roots, also known as Mondia whitei or “white ginger,” is a robust forest climber, which has been used in African (Kenya) traditional medicine for centuries.
Mainly Mukombero roots are used in medical treatment, but the leaves and the entire plant has been utilized as well. Mukombero (Mondia whitei) has a pleasant aromatic character and taste, not unlike cinnamon and vanilla.
Throughout Africa, specifically Kenya, dried Mukombero roots are chewed, and the sap swallowed as an aphrodisiac. Mukombero (White Ginger) roots are used in Zimbabwe in a preparation known as vuka-vuka (Shona, which translates as wake-up, wake-up).
In South Africa (Kenya), the Zulu call Mukombero (uMondi) from which the genus gets its name.
Advantages of Mukombero Roots
Mukombero roots are used in tonics, as an appetite stimulant, against abdominal pains, constipation, and in the treatment of heartburn (Watt and Breyer-Brandwijk, 1962; Hutchings et al., 1996). Mukombero root extracts have shown an androgenic effect in male rats (Watcho et al., 2004).
Mukombero (White Ginger) roots are from the Periplocaceae family and have been used by many traditional medicine practitioners for the management of Erectile dysfunction (ED). Mukombero (Mondia whitei) is used to increase libido and also for the control of low sperm count.
Lampiao et al. investigated motility parameters on the aqueous administration to human spermatozoa in vitro. Results showed significantly enhanced total motility as well as progressive motility in a time-dependent manner.
These support the use of Mukombero roots, especially in men affected with asthenozoospermia.
According to Suresh-Kumar et al., the aqueous and hexane extract of Mukombero showed sexual enhancement in sexually inexperienced male rats.
This is due to the reduction of the hesitation time of the sexually inexperienced males towards receptive females, as indicated by the significant decrease in the ML.
This suggests that the aqueous and hexane extract of Mukombero roots may act by inducing changes in levels of neurotransmitters, modulating the action of these neurotransmitters on their target cells, or by increasing androgen levels.
It confirms the demonstration of the adrenergic effect of aqueous and hexane extracts of Mukombero on chronic administration in vivo in rats.
